Usefulness of the WHO Classification and of the ENETS TNM Staging System to Predict Prognosis in Patients with Rectal NENs


Introduction: WHO classification and TNM staging system have been proposed for rectal neuroendocrine neoplasia (NENs). However, their prognostic accuracy is not validated yet.

Aim(s): Assess the ability of WHO classification/ENETS TNM staging system to predict survival of patients with rectal NENs.

Materials and methods: Retrospective analysis of patients with rectal NENs referred to the Beaujon Hospital (Clichy, France) and the S. Andrea Hospital (Rome,Italy) from 1990 to 2013.
